Patient Comments (1)
Cincinnati, Ohio |
I am 26 years old and a reoccurring biniegn cyst in the crease of my right breast. Dr Columbus did my surgery, she had to take off around 2 inches of skin and I am extremely happy with the results. I pictured my boob looking like sally off of the nightmare before Christmas (just a stitched up mess) but it is just a line and does not look gruesome at all. I strongly believe she cares about the efficiency of the surgery and also cares sincerely about the look of the scar. THANK YOU.
